Small radiation amount 'could have' escaped plant
APNewsBreak: Tiny amount of radiation 'could have' escaped from Calif. nuclear plant
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Federal regulators say a tiny amount of radiation could have escaped into the atmosphere from a Southern California nuclear power plant after a water leak prompted operators to shut down the reactor.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman Victor Dricks says a small amount of radioactive gas "could have" escaped the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station on the northern San Diego Coast.

Southern California Edison spokesman Gil Alexander tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that the amount would have been "extremely small" and possibly not detectable by monitors.



The company and federal regulators say the release would not have posed a safety risk for the public.
